Hulk Characters

The Hulk is constantly enraged and draws his strength from this rage. The angrier The Hulk is the more powerful he becomes. This aspect of his physiology grants him virtually limitless strength. If The Hulk calms down to a certain point, he will revert back to the form of Dr. Robert Bruce Banner.

Cyclops X Men

Cyclops (Scott Summers) is a fictional character, a superhero that is the field leader of the X-Men in the Marvel Comics Universe. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist/co-writer Jack Kirby, he first appeared in The X-Men #1 (September 1963) and was originally dubbed Slim Summers. By #3, his name was changed to Scott and Slim was referred as a nickname. A mutant, Cyclops produces powerful "optic blasts" from his eyes, forcing him to wear specialized glasses at all times and a specialized visor in combat. His powers may have led to his inhibited, meticulous character. These same qualities, however, have made him an ideal leader for the X-Men. He is the son of Corsair; the brother of Havok and Vulcan; the father of Cable; and the widower of Madelyne Pryor and Jean Grey. In alternate realities, he has also been the father of Marvel Girl and Ruby Summers, and the biological parent to X-Man and Cable's clone Stryfe.

The first X-Man recruited by Charles Xavier and one of the original five X-Men, Cyclops has had a large presence in X-Men-related comics since their inception. He has also been featured in almost every adaptation of the team in other media.

In practically every incarnation of the character, he has almost always been shown to be not only Charles Xavier's most loyal student, but also the one who most believes in his dream of mutant and human equality. His loyalty to Xavier has cost him dearly from time to time, yet the character remains by Xavier's side. In turn, Xavier is known to view Scott as one of his most (if not the most) prized pupils, and looks upon Scott not as a mentor to mentee, but rather as a father to a son.

Storm X Men

Storm was a main character in the X-Men cartoon from the 90’s and it was a Saturday morning staple for me and my rave-tastic friends. We were so geeky that we even called ourselves the X-Squad and took X-Men codenames for when we went to the clubs/parties. This was the beginning of me actually going by Storm as my name (Before I legally changed it) and since we had no Cyclops or Professor Xavier (Thank the Goddess for small favors) I “led” the team. We liked nothing better after a Friday night of partying than to watch our favorite characters on the small screen. We were usually still up anyway, a big pile of folks in somebody’s living room being all around hyper and worn out at the same time.

I remember everyone loving Beast and hating on Jean. We even had a Rocky Horror-style interaction with the series and eventually we designed a drinking game on the show (Every time Rogue and Storm get shot out of the sky, drink. Every time Scott yells, “Jean!” Drink. Everytime Jubilee says, “I’m just a kid!” Drink. I’m having a hard time remembering the rest at the moment, but it got to be quite elaborate especially after we started buying copies of the show on VHS). I wish this series was collected on DVD. I’ve got all of Storm’s lines memorized from the episode of “Captive Hearts” where she fights Callisto for leadership of the Morlocks (But instead of a knife like she used in the comics, Ororo and Cal use big sticks with padded ends like old school American Gladiators). Ah, good times.

Anyway, Storm’s costume is white for the first time on this cartoon. Up ’til then she had always worn black in the comics. This costume is based on Jim Lee’s design of Storm which is memorable from his tenure on the series (Including the first issue of the adjectiveless X-Men title). Jim drew Storm in black but he really highlighted the reflection of light on the black leather. I suppose this is how Storm ended up wearing white in the cartoon, but this is all conjecture. I have to say, though, I really don’t like Storm’s wearing a white costume with her white hair (Especially as large as it was in this version). It doesn’t give her enough contrast visually. I did like her voice actors. They gave Ororo a real sense of authority which sometimes bordered on the ridiculous, but all the characters in this series suffered from the same bombastic writing. It was part of the fun.

Bugs Bunny's origin was as a goofy antagonist for Porky Pig in the Warner Bros. cartoon Porky's Hare Hunt (1938), directed by Cal Dalton and Ben "Bugs" Hardaway, for whom the hare is named. Plotwise, it was virtually a repeat of the previous year's Daffy Duck intro, Porky's Duck Hunt, Back then, the Bunny was much smaller and more rabbit-like, and completely white — but in wit, resourcefulness, and the sheer relish with which he demolished his antagonist, he very much resembled his later self.
